Russians trying to leave for Georgia were allowed to cross the border on foot. According to the Baza Telegram channel, this decision was made due to many kilometers of traffic jams that formed near the border.
The report notes that officially the Verkhniy Lars checkpoint on the Russian-Georgian border in North Ossetia is not intended to be passed on foot. True, according to Baza, not everyone who wants to go on foot is allowed to pass. First of all, the passage is open to women and children.
There are 3,500 cars at the Upper Lars checkpoint on the Russian-Georgian border in North Ossetia. This was announced by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic Irbek Tomaev. In addition, about 800 cars have accumulated on the administrative borders with the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic and the Republic of Ingushetia. According to him, over the past week, more than 37,000 cars and over 115,000 people crossed the Northern Lars checkpoint in both directions, which is 23.3% more than a week earlier.
